Hi, this what inspired us to write a steampunk spin-off to Sherlock Holmes. Here's a portrait I drew of his daughter Sheryl Holmers, our main character: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2170022844627 - Let me know if you like it. Be watchful, you sleuths of old and new Sherlockorama!

Subject: Not as good as you'd wish, but....
I've never seen many of these shows on any other OTR site - it's great to see them here. I enjoy listening to anything Sherlock, so it's a pleasure to have them. That being said, the writing isn't the best. Coming up with plausible, well-written stories must be difficult, and I'm afraid the writers of these shows were more workman-like than masterful. Opening the show with Sherlock deducing that his client's long-dead brother was left handed and spoke with a lisp... you get the idea - that sort of thing is easily overdone. I gave them four stars in comparison to other OTR shows, but they deserve less as Holmes stories or classic radio mysteries in general.

Warning: in the Elusive Agent show, Holmes and Watson do a Clippercraft Clothes commercial, in character. Depending on your take, it's either funny of painful - I'm in the painful group.

Subject: STANLEY'S "HOLMES"
Though the Rathbone-Bruce teamup is my preferred Holmes-Watson,John Stanley does a good job considering his Watson's varied. I think this hurts this show and causes the writers to force their relationship. Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce worked together for years on radio and the movies,and to top it off they were good friends in private life. Still a good listen and a good insight into the late '40's.

Subject: Dr Watson constantly second-guesses in these
The stories are good, and there's a gruesome quality to some of them which is welcome. As well, the villains are extra-nasty. So I give it a good rating.

The complaint I have is with the portrayal of Dr Watson. He *second-guesses* Holmes incessantly. Example:

Holmes: We have only half the packet.
Watson: Half?!
Holmes: Do you detect a faint odor of tobacco in this room?
Watson: Tobacco?!
Holmes: Interesting scent, very.
Watson: What do mean, smells like regular tobacco to me!
Holmes: on the contrary this is a rare and unusual blend.
Watson: Eh?!
Holmes: Only one expert makes a blend like this. Grimsby.
Watson: Grimsby?!

Yer not gonna find a dumber Watson than this one, believe me.

Be prepared for the shock of hearing Holmes and Watson participate in clippercraft commercials, Holmes explaining why the cheap suits are so great.(ie, Elusive agent episode 1)
